Da Vinci was a naturalist but what does it mean to be a naturalist. Did Da Vinci believe in God? Did he give birth to the Illuminati? I am going to dive into the man and what he has done by applying spirituality to what I have learned from listening to a compilation of his complete works.
My guest on Thursday, May 1st at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be jeweler, enamelist, metalsmith, artist, and naturalist David C. Freda.
Abou David: “Among the first images created by man were those of animals. One cannot trace the history of art without reference to the animal image. Since prehistoric times, the animal world has provided man the imagery by which to visually illuminate important aspects of himself and his life. The animal image provides a universal language that all cultures can share. Until the extinction of the last species, man will draw upon the animal world for inspiration.
I also probe the world of animals for my imagery. Bird watching, taxidermy, falconry, scuba diving, rock climbing, mountain biking, and numerous other adventuresome activities have educated me enabling me to express the natural world in an artistic sense. My forms are a distillation of these experiences. Some compositions feature realistic “renderings” of animal forms while others are abstractions suggesting a particular theme and create from it an unexpected or surprising result.
To obtain this, I often juxtapose the animal image or abstraction using ancient processes with twentieth century materials such as fine metals, vitreous enamels, aluminum, acrylic, niobium, and so on, while maintaining the sense of a natural habitat via color, texture, and movement. I feel I share a kinship with artists of the past whose intimate knowledge of the natural world also provided them with their concepts..

This week we are hosting a debate on the subject of No-Kill vs Pro-Kill in regards to Sasquatch. We all know that before any conservation can begin, before any studies on them can start, Sasquatch needs to be scientifically acknowledged first. So does a specimen need to be culled in order for the species to be scientifically accepted?
On the pro side of the debate our guests will be Brian Brown and Cliff Griffin of NAWAC or the North American Wood Ape Conservancy. NAWAC is well known for their research location dubbed Area X and the somewhat controversial manner in which they plan to acquire a type specimen for scientific acceptance and subsequent conservation. Brian Brown is an outdoorsman, naturalist, and researcher. He is also the creator of two renowned Bigfoot podcasts, The Bigfoot Show and the Bigfoot Information Project. Cliff Griffin is an outdoorsman, naturalist, and in the medical industry.
On the no-kill side of the debate our guests will be Corey J. Alarie and Jason Aiken. Corey has been an experienced outdoorsman for 30 years and a Sasquatch researcher for 10 years as both a member of NESRA (Northeast Sasquatch Research Association) and AIBR (Alliance of Independent Bigfoot Research). Jason is a lifelong wildlife enthusiast and an independent Sasquatch researcher.
Our goal is to present a civil and structured debate where the most relevant, logical, and intelligent points can be made by both advocacies. We want the listeners to be able to listen to thoughtful and educated points from both sides and be able to contemplate the issues in a reasonable manner. We welcome all participation so if you want to propose questions please feel free to PM us on Facebook, ask questions in the chat room, or call in after the 1st hour to present your questions. The phone number is (646) 652-2569.

Ila Hatter’s mission is to tune people in to the many ways they can make Mother Nature’s pantry and medicine cabinet their own. Hatter does not forage the woods in the hope of making a profit. “In my case, I’m not gathering things to sell but instead am using them for education – teaching people what these plants are, how to identify them, what the traditional uses are, what the potential market might be for them. I combine my knowledge of the flora with folklore, telling interesting stories that go with the botany of what I do.” Her work is guided by a quote from writer Henry David Thoreau. “Thoreau wrote that ‘the woods and fields are a table always spread,’. To me, that’s exactly what I do – that’s what I teach”
Ila Hatter, a descendant of Pocahontas (whose mother was Amopostuskee, a Cherokee of the Kituwah Clan... and whose father was Wahunsunacock (aka "King") Powhatan), was raised on natural remedies along with a love and respect for nature. This led her into exploring the uses of native plants while living in the South from Texas to the Smoky Mountains, the Caribbean, Spain, and Southern Appalachia
Ila, known as THE LADY OF THE FOREST, is an interpretive naturalist, artist, wildcrafter, and gourmet cook with more than 25 years experience teaching the cultural heritage of native plants. She is a staff instructor for the Univ. of Tenn.’s Smoky Mtn Field School, guest instructor for the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont, the John C. Campbell Folk School (Brasstown, NC), The Mountain Retreat Center (Highlands, NC), Snowbird Mtn Lodge (Robbinsville, NC), Charter Board Member of the Yellow Creek Botanical Institute; and Storyteller for Elderhostels in 3 states
